That is how I came to cater a wedding. Yes, a wedding. I had hosted a party (along with my mother) for a family member and one their friends recommended me for a wedding. So me....the one who has a hard time saying no....said okay. What....was.....I.....thinking? It was a great many years ago now, and I believe it turned out very well for what it was. BUT....the couple had met doing karaoke. It was a pasttime they participated in often. They sang throughout their entire reception! No band needed here, folks! The first song....dedicated to a relative who had passed and could not attend, was touching. We (I had recruited my mother and husband to help me that day) thought that was sweet. Then came another song, then another, then another. They had a captured audience who could not escape! It was hilarious to us back in the kitchen. I wish I could have taken a picture of the guests' faces after about the tenth song. I didn't do any more weddings after that one. Not because of the singing....it just wasn't my forte, I guess.
But....I digress once again.... I enjoyed preparing for this shower and exercising my creative muscle. Here are some pictures.

I especially enjoyed reading Privet and Holly this morning. Suzanne polled her family this past weekend to see what they would do with a completely free day....if they "played hooky." I took a nice quick trip to my "hooky-land" deciding what I would do with a free day. It was a great start to this day!
I wish all my bloggy friends and family a most thankful Thanksgiving this week. What are your plans? The day after Thanksgiving I will start my Christmas decorating. I just can't stand the thought of putting anything up until then. Pictures?? Oh yeah!
